Players take on the role of Nick Parker, a.k.a. Havoc, an elite commando from the very first Command & Conquer title. The game features the ability to choose a first- or third-person view of the action. Players guide Havoc through the adventure using a combination of clever stealth and raw firepower. Recon bikes, tanks, and even aircraft become available along the way. Online players can work together to solve levels or go head-to head in deathmatch play.
